The Beauty And The Beast Book Tag

beauty and the beast tag

 

So Nut Free Nerd had left an open nomination for this one, and this challenge sounded SO cute that I HAD to do it. Thanks, Holly! And thanks to Amber Elise at Du Livre for creating this one!

Surprisingly, I’ve neither watched the animated movie nor the live-action one that everyone’s in love with. These last two years have been quite hectic, and the next two seem to continue in that vein, so I’ll have to find time to watch them 😦

Now for the fun part.

villain

A villain you can’t help but love.

sword of summer

Loki from Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard series ( *confession* TOM HIDDLESTON’S GOT NOTHING TO DO WITH THIS *end of confession*).

I’ve always empathised with Loki – his conflicting morals, his inferiority complex, his raging passions…. I’ve always felt that his punishment for killing Balder was too harsh. And have I mentioned how cool shape-shifting is?

OTP

 

Your OTP. 

half-blood prince

This is easily the hardest question, because I ship most characters with myself 😛

But after a few centuries of thought, I can say that I thoroughly ship Remus Lupin and Nymphadora Tonks (S.S Wotcher Wolvie or Ronks).

This is a thoroughly disputed ship – many have called out on Remus for being selfish and too drowned in self-pity to have actually reciprocated Tonks’ love wholly. And they may be right.

But the fact still remains that their love is redeeming – Tonks saved Remus from what could have been a descent into darkness and despair; and he stabilises her wildfire personality. It’s sad that their love had to end in tragedy, but thank God for Teddy Lupin.

destined for bigger things

A character that’s destined for bigger things.

home and the world

Bimala from Tagore’s The Home and the World. Let’s be honest, EVERY character in this book was destined for greater things. But Bimala stands out. Her transformation from a woman who worshiped the dust of her husband’s feel (literally) to a firebrand personification of Bharat Mata was just awe-inspiring. Had it not been for this book’s ambiguous ending, I’m sure we would have seen some greater magic being cast by Tagore.

 

 

food

A book that makes you hungry. 

a little princess

Umm. This question was hard because I always munch on something while reading, so that I don’t need to get up to fetch a snack (#lazy bookworm problems). But Frances Hodgson Burnett’s A Little Princess ends up warming my heart and making me a little hungry because of all the mentions of food in it.

So many feasts, so many secret feasts, so many happy feasts…. *sigh* Time to grab a snack, I guess.

 

opposites attract

Opposites attract.

the hunger games

Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark.

One bakes bad guys while the other bakes bread (bad one, I know).

One is the Girl on Fire –  stubborn and determined. The other is gentle and steady.

One speaks her mind while the other weighs his words carefully before utterance.

‘Nuff said.


I tag whoever is reading this!

What are your reasons for watching Beauty And The Beast? What books would you have chosen for these questions? And is there any way of freeing up a busy schedule? *cries*

My Ships And Songs

 

download

Hey guys!

Sunday today, time for fangirling finally found!

Here’s a list of my favorite ships and the songs I associate with them:

  1. James Potter x Lily EvansInto The Night, Santana Ft. Chad Kroeger

I feel that this is what EXACTLY James would have sung when he first saw Lily. And the beats to the song suits James’ personality so much – proud and upbeat.

2. Remus Lupin x Nymphadora Tonks A Thousand Years, Christina Perri

A more beautiful match cannot be found.

3. Tony Stark x Pepper PottsLeave Out All The Rest, Linkin Park

I feel that this is fitting especially after Age of Ultron

4. Hazel Lancaster x Augusts WatersPhotograph, Ed Sheeran

I also considered Tobias and Tris from Divergent for this one, but meh, I’m in the Tobias hating minority, so I stuck with Hazel and Gus instead.

5. Teddy Lupin x Victoire WeasleyBest Song Ever, One Direction

I know that there is absolutely nothing given about them in canon (Thanks for disappointing me, Cursed Child ), but this is how I imagined their relationship would have gone.

Have better songs for these ships? Or better ships for these songs? Or hell, totally different ships and songs? Share in the comments below!
